Roof Coatings

Rather than replace an aging roof, some businesses choose to invest in a roof coating that will extend the life of a commercial roof and avoid a more costly replacement. A variety of water or solvent based coating materials are available.

Many businesses opt to pay for roof coatings from their annual maintenance budget, a strategy that can potentially offer significant tax savings for business owners.

Absolutely. If someone is hurt on your property, you could be responsible. Don’t simply take a contractor’s word that they have insurance — anyone can provide you with a photocopy of insurance. The only way you can be certain that a contractor is properly covered is to request an insurance certificate from their insurance company. To obtain an insurance certificate for Roofwerks, contact Triangle Insurance at (919) 792-1680.

Roofing is a dangerous occupation and proper insurance is expensive. Many general contractors may carry General Liability insurance on their premises only, or for occupations other than roofing. This type of coverage does not provide any protection to homeowners.

Highlighted Project

Millbrook United Methodist Church, Raleigh, NC

The church had an aging EPDM (Rubber) roof system over a portion of their building that was developing leaks. Many of these leaks were due to failures at the roof seams and flashings while the field membrane was still performing. Roofwerks cleaned the roof and treated the vulnerable areas with ER Systems HER flashing grade sealant. Next, we installed a base and finish coat of polyurethane coating. This solution provided Millbrook UMC a roof system with a 12 year manufacturer’s warranty at a significant cost savings over full replacement. They will also have the option to clean and apply an additional finish coat in 12 years to extend the warranty at a reduced cost to the church.
